A Week of Switching, Shifting, and Stretching
This picture book assists children on the autism spectrum, and any child for that matter, to improving their executive function skills. Specifically, children are guided to examine their black-and-white thinking in order to begin to think more flexibly. Using repeated rhymes and illustrations, the child begins to recognize that the more flexible her thinking, the better she can cope with the challenges that life presents, ultimately leading to fewer meltdowns.
